Today BBVA and NetApp, the data authority for hybrid cloud, announced an alliance that makes NetApp a priority technological partner for BBVA. The alliance is part of a series of strategic agreements the banking group is implementing to become a more flexible and scalable digital bank.

NetApp’s data services portfolio will play an essential role in the bank’s data strategy to meet the growing needs of the organization to simplify and integrate data management across cloud and on-premises to accelerate digital transformation. Through this agreement, BBVA will be able to deliver consistent and integrated hybrid cloud data services for data visibility and insights, data access and control and data protection and security to address the high demands on the company’s digital services.

“This agreement is part of our strategy of partnering with global solutions providers to create a new ecosystem with large partners, capable of supporting our transformation process,” said Ignacio Bernal, Head of Global Architecture at Engineering at BBVA.

“After many years of close collaboration between the two companies, it is a pleasure for us to join BBVA’s select group of strategic alliances to support the banking group’s digital transformation,” said Marc Montiel, vice president enterprise focus countries EMEA at NetApp. “We look forward to continuing our work on the organization’s data-driven technological transformation, which will help the company maintain the high levels of innovation, flexibility and security it has come to expect.”

Through this new agreement, BBVA continues to strengthen its network of alliances with priority technological partners, set up in 2016, that includes companies like Cisco, Red Hat, Salesforce, Amazon Web Services and IBM.
